As a finale to Scalarama 2018 in London, Genesis is proud to present a weekend of non-stop exploding cinema. 9 fantastic films – many of which may be new to you – in the tradition of midnight movies and the Scala’s legendary marathons, selected for you by the films fans’ film fans: Kim Newman, Edgar Wright and Julia Marchese. There’ll be a Q+A on Friday with Kim and our special guest curator from the USA, Julia.

Crumb will be introduced by Julia Marchese


“When I think of fabulous documentaries, this one always springs to mind. Terry Zwigoff’s deep look into the mind and life of 60’s underground comix artist R. Crumb (who I deeply adore) is fascinating, illuminating, and – Crumb would have it no other way – perverted and shocking. A must see!”

Filmmaker Terry Zwigoff creates a complex but affectionate portrait of his longtime friend, underground cartoonist Robert Crumb. A notorious curmudgeon who would prefer to be alone with his fellow cartoonist wife Aline Kominsky-Crumb and his beloved vintage jazz records, Crumb reveals himself to be a complicated personality who suffered a troubled upbringing and harbors a philosophical opposition to the 1960s hippie underground that first celebrated his work.

Tickets are £50 for a weekend pass, £24 for the Saturday ‘Edgar Wright’s stuff’ special, or £10 / £7.50 [students / concessions] for each film.
